A 30-year-old man (Lefteris Vogiatzis) returns from America suffering a deep existential crisis. He goes to Corfu to see his sick mother and tries to find happiness through a desperate love with a young music teacher (Maria Xenoudaki). As the story unfolds, in a suffocating and gloom landscape, he loses his love and ends his sick mother’s suffering. The love of a lonely couple, in the context of an autumnal, abandoned, Corfu, is a comment by the director on a declining world.
